Fae: both singular and plural, it means fairy, fairie, faery, faerie, or any other version of the world you can imagine.

Fair Folk: another name for the Fae.

Geas: a restriction placed upon a person, often at birth, that he feels magically compelled to follow. Not a curse, necessarily, more of an artificial inhibition. A taboo, but imposed upon an individual rather than an entire society.
